That is so pretty! Smiley

I think it is a bit close to the ground for birds to take to it.  You might also try putting some twigs, leaves, bits of cotton, etc. inside so that the feathered ones get the idea.

It's beautiful. I had a ton of those laying around and just threw them away. God, I'm dumb!

It is way too close to the ground for most birds to be comfortable using it.

But it's still a great idea and congrats on making a BEST OF project.

foldingj - hey, did you ever get any inhabitants in your house?  I wonder every now and again - as I look outside and I have some inhabitants in my wooden ones that my dad made me but I keep thinking of this one - it was so pretty!

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

Hey there, I work at a store where we sell all kinds of backyard birding stuff and your house is a really awesome project, but I don't think you'll be getting any birds living in it. The size overall isn't right for the smaller birds, they are very specific and like larger or smaller openings to get in the house based on species. However, I think the main thing is the plastic, birds won't nest in there if they feel the temperature isn't right.
But I think using it as a mini green house is an great idea if you want a functional use for it, but just using it as a piece of yard art on its own would still be great. Awesome colors and awesome job.

Unfortunately NO. During a storm, the house was blown over and seemed to explode on impact. I haven't made another one as of yet, but I haven't rid myself of the materials yet either. I'm sure I can come up with some other crafty ideas for those parts (for I have many). Thanks again to all for looking. J

Ah, the internet. Where men are men, women are men, and children are police officers.

Perfection -as is, but if you want some plastic beads to "pimp it out"......... Grin

I really like this idea. I could see doing this as an anti curtain too. Make some sort of window hanging. Very cool idea. I might just have to test this out with some that I have lying around.
